For many of us the word “fact” is pretty powerful as “pumpkin spice”. When we think of “fact” we think of “truth”-and we assume that when presented with facts-or truth- any of us will concede. But, ironically, facts will prove otherwise (joke). One reason for this is that according to a New Yorker article entitled “Why We Don’t Believe in Science, “when the truth becomes inconvenient the person takes flight from facts” For Olivia, the inconvenience is she hates to be wrong and doesn’t want to admit my striking superiority… But for other situations that inconvenience might be letting go of preconceived notions or judgements that have stood for centuries. We make fun of all those people who though the world was flat and the hissy fits they threw about it, but imagine what an upheaval that must have been- its like learning that (joke). And because the “fact” can often bring change and fear, many will “become more strongly set in their beliefs,” as evidenced in a 2005 study by The University of Michigan… which explains why I told my (person) that (joke), he (reaction). And if the “fact” comes from someone that a source finds to be unreliable, an October 2016 NPR article shows that our willingness to believe drops over 70%.
